I met up with my brother in the top photo and Nick Simmons [ great artist and friend] in the bottom photo.
We visited Stratmore in Rockville MD. Gorgeous place-- complete with full-tea and waiters!
At the National Gallery we saw the VENICE exhibition, as well as the retrospective of PAUL GAUGUIN. There was also a new show on METZU- and relatively forgotten Dutch painter during the 1600's. Of course I loved them all.
It was so special to get away for the weekend. It helps to put everything into perspective.
